Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalms 127:3 KJV
Children come from God. They are created by Him as a blessing to us.
So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27 AMP
We are not evolved from amoeba of frogs or monkeys; we are created by Almighty God, male and female, in His image. He made the first man and woman and He placed in them the ability and desire to pro-create – to bring forth new life and more men and women, in the form of babies, who grow in the womb and are born into the earth. Mankind knows what to do to create (conceive) a baby, but it is God who guides the whole creative process and who forms the baby.
I made the earth and created man upon it. I, with My hands, stretched out the heavens, and I commanded all their host. Isaiah 45:12 AMP
For thus says the Lord — Who created the heavens, God Himself, Who formed the earth and made it, Who established it and did not create it to be a worthless waste; He formed it to be inhabited — I am the Lord, and there is no one else. Isaiah 45:18 AMP
God created the heavens and earth – not to be a worthless waste – but to be inhabited by His creation.
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: "I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself. Isaiah 44:24 NKJV
Thus says God the Lord — He Who created the heavens and stretched them forth, He Who spread abroad the earth and that which comes out of it, He Who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it. Isaiah 42:5 AMP
The God who made heaven and earth also made you and me. He formed us in the womb and He gives life – breath and spirit - to every one of us.
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. Psalms 139:13-16 KJV
For thou hast possessed my reins:
For You formed my inward parts. “Possessed”, here, does not mean to possess or control; it means to own; acquire; set up; erect – to fashion, or form, or to cause to grow together in the womb. “Reins” literally mean “kidneys” and figuratively, it means the mind or inner self. It is referring to the foundations of our existence as a person. It could even be referring to what we now know as DNA. God is the owner and creator of the blueprint that created you and me.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
The creation of a person, from conception to birth, from one cell to billions of cells, in a perfectly functioning creation, is an awe-inspiring process. Ecclesiastes 11:5 NKJV says that, “As you do not know what is the way of the wind, Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child, So you do not know the works of God who makes everything.” We are indeed wonderfully and marvelously created by our Creator.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret:
My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret. My substance, or my frame, was hidden from everyone except God as He made me in secret – in a special protected and private place - my mother’s womb.
Curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth:
Skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. “Curiously wrought” means: to variegate color, i.e. embroider; by implication, to fabricate; embroiderer, needlework, make curious work. My frame - of bones (the skeleton), and the external covering of muscular flesh, tendons, veins, arteries, nerves, and skin were skillfully and intricately woven inside the womb, which is the center of the body - from conception to full development.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect:
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. “Substance” (not the same word as “substance” in the previous verse) means: a wrapped-up and unformed mass; referring to the embryo being imperfect or not yet fully developed. Even though it is “unformed” to the eye, at this stage, it is still a perfect little human being in process. A baby's heart already begins to beat 18 days from conception, and by 21 days the heart is pumping blood through a closed circulatory system. A baby's brainwaves can be detected at 6 weeks from conception
And in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them:
This is referring to the embryonic stage of growth, from the fertilized egg until the organs have developed sufficiently so that it can live independently. Even in this stage, the scripture says that all the human members or parts are contained or written in God's book and that they are fashioned in accordance with God’s original pattern established when He created Adam and Eve. You were perfectly formed down to the smallest detail. Even all the hairs of your head are planned and numbered.
Even everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made. Isaiah 43:7 AMP
